Dr.-Franz-Rehrl-Platz Development

Urban Intervention

The Dr.-Franz-Rehrl-Platz is located in the Historic Center of the City of Salzburg, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. The proposal is a site-specific yet contemporary response to this complex and heterogeneous setting, a residential complex that includes garden dwellings, a multilevel apartment structure, mixed-use retail space, and a multifunctional podium providing connective support spaces between the complex and the adjoining existing hospital, including doctors’ offices.

Given the historical nature of the site context, extensive research was included in the design approach. Salzburg’s rich urban fabric was largely developed in the period from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, during which it existed as a city-state ruled by a prince-archbishop.
